Most helpful review for Vibra-Quatic 2 PinpointerVibra-quatic 2
I will post my review here since this is the Vibraprobe 580's bigger brother. After reading all the reviews for the 580, this is what I consider to be the performance for the Vibra-Quatic 2 in a saltwater environment. First of all, the 2" tip seemed large at first, but after using it, it seems to be fine considering it requires some movement (a slow sweep speed) over the target. The tip does not get in the way of finding the object, even the smallest of ones such as ear rings, 3mm lead split shot, or the same size piece of aluminum foil or can slaw.
The sensitivity is very good, I got 1/2" on the above very small targets. That's acceptable, if it falls through the sand scoop, it's going to be close to the surface. The tip is durable and can be pushed around in the sand until the target is identified. 1 1/2" on a dime, 2" on a quarter, and up to 4" on larger objects. That's all the depth I need in a pinpointer. It does not turn off automatically like the 580, but I prefer that as it is easy to turn off when you are done.
I use it while hunting underwater with my Excalibur II, and since most targets are recovered just from pinpointing with my detector, the Vibra-Quatic only comes out when a very small object needs to be located. Super long battery life, even using NiMH rechargeables. I am very happy with it, with no complaints whatsoever.

I purchased the Minelab Pro-Find about two weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I had a Fisher F-point before, and it is nowhere near as sensitive or useful.
I have been searching a local park and pulling out coin after coin quickly and with far less digging than I have been used to. When I find a good target, all I need to do is make a hole just big enough for the end, and I can locate and pop out a coin quickly.
It is also sensitive enough to detect coins 1-3 inches from the surface. I've even gone back to spots where I dug holes and came up empty handed, and located the targets quickly. I haven't used any of the other high end pinpointers but I can definitely vouch for this one.
